Researchers from the Rzeszów University of Technology (PRz) have developed a “textronic RFID identifier” which can be hidden, for example, in a button or a decorative element sewn into clothing.
Until now, RFID has been used in contactless payments for everyday shopping, ski passes on ski slopes, or in access control, and in documents with an electronic layer, such as ID cards and biometric passports.
Currently, the scientists from the Department of Electronic and Telecommunications Systems at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science under the supervision of Dr Eng. Piotr Jankowski-Mihułowicz will create an electronic radio identifier for Esotiq & Henderson and integrate it with textile products using commonly used sewing methods.
This solution will allow electronic identifiers to be created already at the stage of production of textile products, which can be used at every stage of the life cycle of these products.
